Idiot. Cambridge UK
Why don't you focus on your current 650b bike project eh
just realised that its actually 26"
Same thing...I'm sure
Feel like I've seen many americans using Vee tyres on Trendy Desert Bikepacking Websites so they might be OK in the right conditions
Modern SKS bluemels come with stand off spacers for getting round disc calipers.
Was interested in these. What kind of temperatures are you wearing them at?
I have a pair of swrve waterproof softshell trousers which are basically too warm for anything above 5 degrees
Thanks for the hints Chris and Eejit, will no doubt ask more nearer to the time.
I know it's somewhat a moving target, but do you have any idea of the range of weather conditions? Just to give the group a vague idea. I was saying waterproof jackets/trousers/boots will be essential but have said they probably won't need thermal base layers. (obviously will need insulation layers etc but not the full long john set up)
Blea Tarn is a decent wild swimming option if you're doing the "on to burnmore tarn" walk and don't mind doing the rest of the walk with soggy underpants (was fine for me)
Anyone have any recommendations for Snowdonia? Going in early April, looking for day walks. The group doesn't mind length or elevation much but has very limited ability or will towards "scrambling" or anything more technical. Will have a car for transport. Staying in Llanwrst.
Also interested if there are any public transport accessible "things to do" for any members of the group who might not feel up to a walk for whatever reason. Cafes/nice pubs/karaoke/wild swimming (in april??) etc.
In return I offer my fav walk in the Lake district:
changing scenery, good start and end location, nice challenge.
A nice walk because you can walk it, some people can catch the steam railway back, and others can carry on to walk
It's a good deal for sure.
Big Bens aren't that bad tho. If mans on a budget thing, the diff between #12 and #40 is more than a couple falafel wraps.
The fact this forum cannot seem to agree on a cheap functional 26" tyre for riding around town/to the pub is how we ended up with brexit.
Big bens are 5.99 off PX if you can deal with brown.
Helps me get to sleep.
